XXX. WELLESLEY, MASS., MARCH 2, 1922 No. 19 HOUSE DISCUSSES CHAPEL ATTENDANCE Sport Costumes Also Considered "The constant decrease in chapel at- tendance has become a matter of seri- ous concern," said M dred MuYfl, Speaker of the House of Representa- tives, at a meeting of the House held in Founders' Hall on Thursday after- noon, February 23. The question of compulsory chapel attendance has therefore offered itself as a possible alternative to the present voluntary service. The advisability of such a change was the chief subject of dis- cussion at the meeting. Several other matters, including the wearing of knickers on the campus, the com- mittee bureau plan, and the possibility of returning from vacations only in time for one's first class, were also brought up by the speaker. Question of Chapel a Serious One The slight attendance at morning chapel has caused many of the officers of the college to wonder whether the service means so little to the life of the college that it should be abolished altogether. The House felt strongly that chapel should not be abolished, but discussed a system of compulsory chapel in use in other universities and colleges. In favor of compulsory chapel, speakers urged the need of Wellesley, as a college, to come to- (Continued on Page 5, Col. 1) FELLOWSHIPS OFFERED IN ECONOMIC RESEARCH Training Given to Graduates Three paid fellowships in social-eco- nomic research are offered each year by the Women's Educational and In- dustrial Union to women who wish thorough preparation for such work.

WELLESLEY NIGHT PROMISES TO BE SUCCESS FOR FUND Mr. Arliss Will Speak Plans for the Wellesley ,Night Per- formance of The Green Goddess at the Plymouth Theatre ou March 13 are rapidly being completed, under the di- rection of the Boston Wellesley Club. The committee in charge is composed of Mrs. Alice Morton Claflin, '10, who was active in making Wellesley Night last year a success; Mrs. Swett, in charge of the candy which is to be sold for Wellesley; Mrs. Helen Strain Russell, '20, and Miss Florence Kel- logg, '20. Ushers and candy sellers have already been appointed, with Olive Ladd, '22, in charge. Sale of Tickets The Plymouth Theatre is helping to make the performance a financial suc- cess for the Fund. The entire house has been sold to the Boston Wellesley Club, who are selling the tickets at holiday rates, with a few at a lower price. The most expensive seats in the house will be $3.50. Mr. Arliss Will Speak As an added attraction, Mr. Arliss, «'ho stars fa the production, has con- sented to make a special speech to the Wellesley audience. Before the play and between the acts, Wellesley songs will be sung, with Hildegarde Churchill, '22, as leader. SPEAKERS PRESENT NEGRO EDUCATIONAL PROBLEMS Hampton Quartette Sings Negro Songs The President of Hampton Institute, Dr. Gregg, a Virginia lawyer, Mr. Walker, and four graduates of the school in the famous Hampton quartet, made the 4:40 hour on Friday, February 24, one that a capacity Bill- ings Hall audience would fain have prolonged indefinitely. The first speaker, Mr. Walker, was introduced by President Pendleton. In vivid style, he outlined his early life and told how, born of slave parents, he had worked to earn enough money to get to Hampton; then how he had earned enough to stay there. "You don't know what ignorance is," said Mr. Walker earnestly. "There was a time in my life, however, when I had more of that commodity than I knew what to do with." Work at Hampton Described The speaker then described the training he had had at Hampton, and how, upon graduating, he had gone back to his home and raised the nego living conditions, by means of more schools, temperance movements, and consequent lowering of criminal and (Continued on Page 9, Col. 3.) SEES BARN AT PRESENT AS EXPERIMENTAL THEATRE Professor Baker Gives Views on College Dramatics "The one thing you can never take ,'- chance on in the theatre business is boring your audience," said Professor George P. Baker, of Harvard Univer- sity, when interviewed, on the occa- sion of his last visit here, as to the sort of play desirable for college pro- duction. In initiating the present sys- tem of all-college dramatics, the Drama Committee has had some diffi- culty over the choice of plays which will be at once popular with the col- lege, and yet conform to a certain standard of excellence. Function of Wellesley Dramatics It is always necessary to consider the peculiar circumstances of specific cases. Wellesley is situated sufficiently near to enable the students to see mus- ical comedy at will. For this reason, Professor Baker thought that the col- lege dramatics should fill (and, if nec- essary, create) a need for other forms (Continued on Page 2, Col. 2.) ARCHITECT TO LECTURE Mr. C. Z. Klauder Will Speak On Design In Architecture The Department of Art announces a lecture to be given by Mr. Charles Z. Klauder on Thursday, March 9, at 7:45 P. M. in the Art Building. Mr. Klauder is of the firm of Day and Klauder, Architects, of Philadelphia, who designed Founders' Hall. His subject will be "Some Aspects of De- sign in Architecture." Mr. Klauder has been asked by the American As- sociation of Architects to speak at col- leges throughout the country on sub- jects relating to the appreciation of art and architecture. WORK OF 56 PRINT MAKERS SHOWN AT MUSEUM Exhibit Will Close March 18 An exhibition of the work of the Print Makers Society of California will be held in the gallery of the Farnsworth Museum from February 21 to March 18. This exhibition in- cludes block prints, lithographs and etchings and represents the work of fifty-six artists. These artists are scattered over England, France, Italy, Australia, the United States and Can- ada, many of them being members or associates of the Royal Society of Etchers of London. PROGRAM ANNOUNCED FOR RACHMANINOFF CONCERT Pianist and Composer Will Give First Recital in Series . Chopin Sergei Rachmaninoff, world-famous pianist and v omposer, will play the following selections at his recital in the Houghton Memorial Chapel on Monday, March 6, at 8:00 P. M.: 1. Ballade No. 2 Liszt 2. Ballade, Opus 24 Grieg 3. Ballade No. 3 Nocturne, Opus 27 Valse in D flat major Scherzo, Opus 39 4. Prelude in C sharp ") minor I Rachmaninoff Polka de W. R. 5. Etude (Capriccio) Opus 28 Dohnanyi 6. Liebesleid . . Kreisler-Rachmaninoff 7. Tarantella (Venezia e Napoli), Liszt (Steinway Piano Used) The Department of Music announces that no more reserved seats are avail- able. It is also ruled that no single tickets will be sold for this concert alone, but only those which include the entire course. The reason is that the college is unable to finance con- certs of such note as the.se unless the whole amount of the expense is pledged beforehand. NEW SCHOLARSHIP IDEALS DISCUSSED BY DEANS College Girls Less Collegiate, Conference Hears "I believe there is a renewed ideal in the average college student today," said Mrs. Pearl Randall Salmon, dean of women at the University of Ver- mont, at the conference of the deans of womens' colleges held in Chicago last week. The Christian Science Monitor, in quoting her speech fur- ther, continues, "Am I incorrect in thinking that I sense the beginning of a reaction against an over-emphasis of college life and an under-emphasis of college attainment? There seems to be an increasing feeling that the colleges exist only for those who are worth college training, and that the average student, as well as the honor student, must find his ultimate goal and develop his possible power." Mrs. Salmon, in her championship of the cause of the average student, said that when he had "gained some understanding of his own limits and possibilities, has sensed even dimly the scope and power of wisdom and beauty through t!he ages/' then he would be ready to put into circulation the truths unearthed by the research of the scholar. Dean Waite, Dean Tufts, and Miss Orvis attended the conference. THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS HAVE YOU SEEN OUR ATTRACTIVE ii WAISTS SUITS SWEATERS DRESSES PECK BROOKS CO., Inc.

While trying the ex- periment of all-college dramatics, there is an excellent opportunity for the Barn to be experimental in its choice of plays. Enthusiasm and Patience Needed In speaking of the experimental theatre, Professor Baker brought up many of the problems confronting the Barn at present. He mentioned the inevitable hostility of audiences, who take the aggressive attitude of de- manding to be amused, rather than seeking to understand. This spirit of apposition he believes can be overcome by community cooperation in pushing the plays, and by a generous exercise of the enthusiasm and patience which triumphantly do away with obstacles to production. Professor Baker felt that the system of centralized dra- matics was the only feasible one; and he was full of encouragement as to the amount that could be accomplished with the most meager equipment.

ROULET-PAVEY READS FROM "PETIT PIERRE" Alliance Francaise Hears Well Known Lecturer Readings from Petit Pierre, the novel by Anatole France, were given by Mme. Roulet-Pavey, member of the Societe de Lecture et de Recitation of Paris, at a meeting of the Alliance Francaise in Tower Court, Monday evening, February 20. The well-known French lecturer prefaced her reading by a short talk on Anatole France and his literary achievements. The selections she read were entertaining and well inter- preted. The success of her delivery was partly due to her own charming personality. A reception in Tower Court preced- ed the reading and afforded an oppor- tunity for members of the Alliance Francaise to meet Mme. Roulet-Pavey and to talk with her informally. In the receiving line were President Pendleton, Mme. Roulet-Pavey, Dean Tufts, Miss Dennis and Miss Damazy of the French Department, the presi- dent and vice-president of the Alliance. The Alliance is indebted to Mrs. Ralph Wheeler, of Boston, for the privilege of hearing Mme. Roulet-Pavey.

THE CHAPEL DILEMMA Of late there has been much discus- sion as to whether Wellesley shall or shall not have compulsory morning chapel. The present system, of hav- ing chapel service purely voluntary, has resulted in so slight an attend- ance as to seem to argue a lack of desire on the part of the student body for week-day services. If it is true that the college at large does not want morning chapel and sees no interest in it, the administration may decide to omit it altogether. But we feel that the vast majority of students would view with disfavor any plan to discon- tinue morning services. Even those who haven't the energy or inclination to get down to the chapel at 8:15 each morning, believe in having daily serv- ices for the sake of those who care to attend. It is manifestly unfair, how- ever, to ask the administration to con- tinue these services unless they are supported by the student body. Un- less attendance improves or services are discontinued altogether, the only alternative is to make chapel com- pulsory. The strongest argument in favor of compulsory chapel seems to be that the college needs some means of get- ting together, of thinking and acting as a unit, and that a chapel service attended by the entire student body would satisfy this need. Any attempt to create a feeling of solidarity throughout the college is laudable, but there is no assurance that a rule compelling undergraduates to assem- ble together would be effective. No spontaneous esprit de corps can be generated by compulsion, nor is the present type of chapel service wholly adequate. The expedient might be tried of making chapel less formal and more inspiring than it is at present, with the hope that more students would then attend of their own ac- cord. If brief talks on questions con- cerning college life or on subjects of interest and importance to such a community as this were substituted for the reading of the lesson and Psalms the morning services might be- come more representative of college and make a stronger appeal to stu- dents. Also it is quite possible that a change in the time of service would result in larger attendance. The bene- fit derived from starting the day out with a chapel service is perhaps less than the advantage of having more people at a later service. If chapel were held in the late afternoon it could be half instead of a quarter of an hour long. Many of these sugges- tions may prove unfeasible upon in- vestigation, but it might be well to try some such expedients before making chapel attendance compulsory.

COMPULSORY CHAPEL To the Wellesley College News: Chapel exercises as they are at- tended at present do not begin to ful- fill their function in the life of the college. It is self-evident that we can- not leave attendance a voluntary mat- ter any longer. Two alternatives are open to us: We can eliminate morn- ing chapel altogether or we can make it compulsory. To eliminate the serv- ices altogether would be a step back- ward, for in our attempt to conform to the purposes and ideals of the founders of the college we cannot al- together disregard morning chapel. After all, it is not such a punish- ment to attend chapel. It merely means beginning one's day at 8:15 in- stead of at 8:40. If anyone had re- ligious scruples against the service itself, it is to be presumed that she would not be forced to attend. But the conscientious objectors are few in number. Most of us are just lazy. We belong to the class which says, "I'd like to go to chapel, but I just don't get there." If classes were made entirely voluntary a lot of us would have the same feeble excuse. But if we were under some obliga- tion to attend chapel, we would get in the habit before very long. And no one can deny that it is a habit worth having. It seems a pity to give up chapel altogether but at the rate at which matters are going now we will be forced to before very long, unless we make attendance compulsory. 1923. A PKOTEST To the Wellesley College News: The author of "A Sacrifice for No Gain," which appeared in your Free Press Column on February 9, has been accused of abysmal stupidity. She wishes to protest! The author is fully aware of how the present limitation was put upon so- cieties, and of why it was done. That was two years ago, and the plan was tentative. The societies agreed to it upon this basis, for they felt that the Barn needed everything to give it a splendid start. If, in the course of two years, the societies felt they were suffering too much they were sure the Barn, now safely established and be- ginning a new tradition of its own, would consider their needs. The societies have suffered. Be- cause their work could be made known to so few people, those who know nothing of it say they do no work at all. Because so few fresh- men and sophomores know anything of it, the tendency grows not to take work into consideration when they sign for societies. The freshmen and sophomores must have more chance to become acquainted through the open events. When such a small number of students can see the event, and it is an invitation affair it becomes an exclusive gathering, approaching a rushing party. But above all, that to witness such well-spent effort as goes into society dramatic events should be made the privilege of a fortunate few, seems totally out of keeping with the Wellesley ideal of fairness and democracy. The author of "Barn or Societies" (which seems a misleading title, since the societies have no desire to dis- place the Barn, whatever may be the Barn's intention), states that more time would be needed to prepare for five or six hundred guests. The so- cieties do not ask for more time. They feel their productions at present could be witnessed with pleasure by twice that number. Moreover, if the larger an audience, the more important the event, the Barn is still far enough in the lead to draw all the talent to it- self. Isn't the real difference in the coach, anyway? A girl with dramatic talent will rush to be in the event where she can have experienced coaching, and develop her powers. If the Academic Council would con- sider a society event with six hundred guests "major," it must consider a Barn Pliscoda so too. The case of the societies is a hard one. They are bitterly attacked for failure to justify their existence by work. When they beg to be allowed "S" A new and startling use of the for- merly commonplace letter " S " has very recently been discovered. The name of its progenitor has been lost, making any reward for his service im- possible. It has been observed that this pe- culiar usage of " S " is most prevalent among that class of people, commonly known as " Flappers." However, be that as it may, the discovery is a re- markable one, as will be noticed by a careful perusal of the following: " S' your family? " "S' fine. S' yours?" " S' well. S' om I." " S' the next dance? " "S' Saturday." " S' isn't. S' Friday." " S' great." " S' new car of Henry's." " S' one of his father's." " S* his." " S' not. See that bird?" " S' n owl." "S' not." " S' n eagle." " S' n either. S' n ostrich." ■ " S' tis." " S' time to go." " S' long." "S' long." r The College Child's Alphabet (Being definitions of a certain system of marking) A is for Anyone, Tiny or great, Who studies her lessons Till hours are late. B is for Brainy — People who work "With conscience and will" And can't ever shirk. C is for Credit Sweet word to one's ears, Which means she is safe Till another mid-years. D is for Doubtful, The status of some, Which often implies That its owner is dumb. E is for Edict,— "She shall not pass!" Often it means that She drops from her class. F is for Failure Which all people hate, Saying in sorrow, "Too late! Ah, too late! " Happy indeed is the dear "college child," That farther than this, her grades aren't compiled! to meet this criticism by direct proof, they are denied the opportunity. 1922* (Continued on Page 6, Col. 1.) THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS What Is Water Japan? IAPAN — not the country but a metal-coating varnish — *■* and your morning bottle of milk. Totally unlike, yet associated! Ordinary japan consists of a tough, rubbery, tar-like "base" and a highly inflammable "solvent." The solvent dilutes the base so that the metal may be coated with it easily. The presence of the solvent involves considerable fire risk, espe- cially in the baking oven. Milk is a watery fluid containing suspended particles of butter fat, so small that one needs the ultra-microscope to de- tect them. An insoluble substance held permanently in sus- pension in a liquid in this manner is in "colloidal suspension." The principle of colloidal suspension as demonstrated in milk was applied by the Research Laboratories of the General Electric Company to develop Water Japan. In this com- pound the particles of japan base are colloidally suspended in water. The fire risk vanishes. So the analysis of milk has pointed the way to a safe japan. Again Nature serves industry. Connected with the common things around us are many principles which may be applied to the uses of industry with revolutionary results.

In answer to this, it was argued that to make chapel compulsory would be to adopt a backward principle in religion, and one to which the conscientious objector might well object. A p:an was also suggested whereby chapel could be made more interesting, through out- side speakers or talks on current subjects, and thus have a more univer- sal appeal. Further discussion was postponed until house meetings in the dormi- tories should give the college at large opportunities to discuss the question. House Suggests Knirker Regulations The House voted that the result of the discussion concerning the wearing of knickers be posted in the houses as a suggestion. The consensus of opinion was that, on the campus, knickers should be worn with coats, and only for sports. A petition requesting that students be allowed to return after vacations in time for their first class, and not at a set time, is to be sent from the House to the Academic Council for consid- eration. The committee bureau sys- tem was voted abolished, after reports from the head of Christian Associa- tion and the vice-president of the Barnswallows, and the question of vil- lage seniors was laid on the table in- definitely. WORLD NEWS Resigns From Bench Feb. 19. Judge Landis has resigned from the Federal bench in order to de- vote more time to the American Le- gion and to organized baseball, of which he is now the supreme dictator. Army Dirigible Burns Feb. 21. The army dirigible, Roma, built by Italy for the United States, crashed to the earth near Hampton Roads in Virginia, hitting high ten- sion wires which ignited the hydro- gen. It is believed that faulty control of the rudder was the original cause of the wreck which resulted in the death of 34 passengers. Only 11 es- caped from the burning airship. New London Hygiene School Feb. 22. The Minister of Health of the British Government announces a gift of £2,000,000 from the Rockefel- ler Foundation toward the cost of building and equipping a school of hygiene in London. A provision is at- tached which binds the British Gov- ernment to the maintenance of staff and school. Sliaw Declines Political Offer Feb. 23. George Bernard Shaw has declined the invitation of the Labor Party of West Edinburgh to become a candidate for the British Parliament. He stated that he preferred not to nar- row his audience "from civilized man- kind to a handful of bewildered com- mercial gentlemen." Reduction in England's Army Feb. 23. England is reducing her army by the discharge of 33,000 offi- cers and men — involving the demobi- lization of 24 battalions of infantry, 47 batteries of artillery, and 5 cavalry regiments. The saving of expenditure is estimated at £15,500,000. Industrial Alliance Feb. 22. An agreement was adopted unanimously by the representatives of more than 2,000,000 workers in coal mines, railroad employees, and long- shoremen at a meeting in Chicago. The declaration called for "closer cooper- ation of our forces which now operate to protect more effectively the union workers in wage struggles." This, however, does not bind the railroad men or longshoremen to a sympathetic strike on April 1, the date set for the miners' walk-out. Twenty-Tear Anglo-French Alliance Feb. 26. Poincare and Lloyd George have announced that the Anglo- French Treaty of alliance is to be signed in London before the opening of economic negotiations at Genoa on April 10. The treaty, extending for twenty years, pledges England to come to immediate aid of France in ease of unprovoked at lack by Ger- many and to support France in en- forcing German disarmament. The alliance also calls for joint action in case of trouble on Germany's eastern frontier. THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS FREE PRESS, (Continued from Page 4, Col. 4.) THINK! THEN ACT! To the Wellesley College News: Do you want the new Barn plan and the kind of dramatics it has given you? Before deciding this question which is vital to every one of you, you should weigh the facts, for they alone uphold or condemn the present Barn plan. In March, 1920, when the new plan for dramatics was proposed, it was stated that the first aim was to achieve better dramatics. All right. Now, has the Barn in its two year trial period given better dramatic productions? Many who have attended Barn plays both under the old and new plan feel as I do, that the new plan has not done what it proposed to do and there- fore should not be accepted in its present form by the college. In the first place the Barn chose to give the Tragedy of Nan. Society Zeta Alpha had already given that play, and as the March 11, 1920 NEWS states, "Its presentation marked an- other able and artistic, dramatic pro- duction." But the Barn ignored that fact, and decided to give the play as one of its major dramatic events of the year. Moreover it took the princi- pal character, Rebecca Hill, and then having given the play made brilliant by her acting, sat back on its laurels and said, "That's what the new Barn plan brings about." Then Operetta was given and highly praised (and rightly so) but its suc- cess can hardly be said to be an argu- ment for the new Barn plan. Operetta always has been an all-college event, composed and managed by the student body. And then came Drake, that glitter- ing pageant of last June's commence- ment, that was only an able handling of masses. Certainly it was not a well chosen performance for a com- mencement program, since Tree Day and Float Night, both commencement features are pageant in character. Finally the Barn gave Moliere's play The Learned Ladies. A NEWS article rated it highly but never once mentioned the fact that the men's voices were hopelessly feminine, and that at the Saturday evening perform- ance the play practically fell through. Hesitation and repetition of syllables were frequent, and once the dialogue came to a complete standstill. Now that can not be called a finished pro- duction no matter by whom or under whose auspices the play was given. Such have been the dramatics under the new Barn plan. Listen now to at least a few of the many facts and crit- icisms of plays under the old plan and ask yourself if you think your drama- tics as good. To go back far enough to give a good perspective, let us take 1913's senior play Tristram and Iseult, a play worthy of production by any good dramatic organization. A NEWS oi that date says it was a play of singu- larly beautiful artistic effects as well as successful acting. Again, in 1914 Alpha Kappa Chi presented Medea and the July NEWS says, "No higher trib- ute can be paid to the success of Medea than that the interest and at- •!•' HI! hi flthanMer & <Eo Tremont Street, near West Misses' London Made Chenille Frocks "Skm& Rrg.

Then in 1915 The Piper was given, and Mrs. Josephine Preston Peabody Marks thought so highly of it that she wrote the following to Miss Smaill, "I am full of appreciation for the brilliant results of all your work, for vivid and sympathetic intelligence of rendering and for generous imagination toward the spirit of the play. I have had no such satisfaction from any profession- al skill so far." Such were the criti- cisms of the earlier plays. Can you honestly say anything half so good for the plays produced under the new Barn plan of the last two years? I for one say, "No." And now to turn to the later plays. In 1919, the juniors gave The Man Who Married a Dumb Wife and Three Pills in a Bottle, a 47 Workshop play. Of the first the NEWS says, "The play on the whole was an excellent produc- tion, the results of a careful, pains- taking work and one that 1921 may well be proud of." Of the second play it says, "It is one that has not been equalled in the' memory of the college generation except in 1919's presenta- tion of The Chinese Lantern. All these illustrations have taken a good deal of space but they are nec- essary to give the college members a sufficient background of plays with which to compare our present produc- tions. I feel as do many, many people that the new Barn plan not only has failed to give plays equal to plays given in the past, but has fallen below the standards of the past. So why support the Barn plan whose aim was to achieve better college dramatics when it has shown itself unable to do so? Now this is not being written with the idea of putting societies first, or from a society standpoint, but from the standpoint of an alumna who does not desire to lose the beauty and worth of plays given in the past, and who feels that under the plan of the last two years the Barn has not achieved better dramatics. Now, since the Barn in the ample time that it has had to show its possi- bilities has not given the college better dramatics, do you intend to vote for the plan when it comes up for atten- tion? The proponents of the plan will urge you to. Freshmen, sophomores and juniors hearken to the facts and criticisms given by many alumnae, and think over carefully the plays you have seen and ask yourself if you think them excellent. By way of constructive suggestion, let the Barn give Operetta, the June play and even the junior play, three of the major events, but let the dramatics of the past live and thrive as those of the past have. Undergrad- uates, do not vote for the plan as it stands. Think, considering the values of past plays, and propose the plan whereby the Barn can both give per- formances that could satisfy its high- 's' alms, and yet save and appreciate the dramatics, given by societies, which are held in high esteem by older alumnae and recent graduates.

NATIONALISM A MADNESS, SAYS LECTURER Deplores Present Tendencies in Europe "The history of the nineteenth cen- tury had one great tendency," said Professor Josef Redlich in his lecture on present day conditions in the form- er Austrian Empire, given in Billings Hall on Monday evening, February 27.' ' "That was the consolidation of the great European continent into large empires which were centers of cul- ture, trade, and commerce, — the uni- fying agents of modern civilization." The war, continued Mr. Redlich, de- stroyed the three oldest empires; the Russian, the Ottoman, and the rem- nants of the Holy Roman Empire of Germanic peoples which existed in what was known as the Austro-Hun- garian Empire. This tendency, how- ever, roused the spirit of nationalism which has for its war cry the self- determination of small and large ra- cial groups. The war, which pro- duced the greatest changes which have happened in Europe in the last five hundred years, ended in at at- tempt to break up these large entities into small self-governing states. By cutting up the old units, said Mr. Red- lich, the main arteries of culture and civilization in Europe have been sev- ered, and consequently a continuous process of growing poverty and eco- nomic weakness is going on. The only solution for this "nationalistic madness" is, according to Mr. Red- lich, a "code of toleration enforced by the full power of progressive na- tions and in large measure by the education of the people, through an international association which has roots in every corner of Europe."

The Argument Euripides, on account of his hatred of women displayed in his tragedies, is accused and condemned in the Thesmophoria, a festival to which only women were admitted. After a vain attempt to persuade the poet Agathon to assume the risk, Euripedes pre- vails upon his father-in-law, Mnesilo- chus, to enter the Thesmophoria in disguise. Mnesilochus is discovered to be a man. Euripedes appears in the guise of characters in his plays to try to save Mnesilochus by a ruse. At length, by a dancing girl and boy, the policeman is enticed away. These parodied scenes are almost entirely in the words of the tragedies of Euri- pedes. Phi Sigma Phi Sigma took up folk lore in a general way at its program meeting, the first of the year relating to this, its chosen subject of study. The meeting was conducted informally, those with special topics speaking from their seats. The following sub- jects were considered: "What Folk Lore Is," "History and Growth of Folk Lore," "Forms of Folk Lore," "Folk Stories," "Folk Dancing," and "Folk Songs."

New Selective Plan at Dartmouth High scholarship, character, leader- ship qualities, and the principles of geographical, professional and occu- pational distribution are the primary factors in a new selective process Dy which Dartmouth College will choose the class of 1926. This has been made necessary by the overwhelming num- ber of applicants and the fact that only a comparatively small group can be admitted to the college next Sep- tember. Honor System Suspended The honor system under which stu- dents of the Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsyl- vania have been accustomed to taking all examinations, was suspended by special faculty action on February 13. Reports of repeated violations, com- bined with the reticence of the Whar- ton men to report violators to the Honor Committee, was assigned as the reason for the suspension of the tra- ditional code. — Ex.

CONVENTION National Student Assembly To Dc Organized For the first time in the history of the student movement of the Young Women's Christian Association, a na- tional student assembly will be organ- ized at the seventh national conven- tion of the Young Women's Christian Association, which will take place at Hot Springs, Ark., April 20 to 21. More than 200 student delegates from the leading colleges and universities of the country will attend as delegates and participate in the election of a national student president. Emily Gordon, a member of the student body at Wellesley College, who has been serving as the national chairman of the field councils of the student Y. W. C. A. movement, will pre- side at the meeting at Hot Springs, until the election of a president. Miss Welch has called a meeting of the student executive committee for March 4, at the National Headquarters of the Young Women's Christian Asso- ciation, 600 Lexington Avenue, New York City, at which time the commit- tee chairmen for the student assembly at Hot Springs will be appointed. This will be the second time in the history of the Y. W. C. A. that the student and industrial groups have come together to discuss their prob- lems, the first occasion being at a conference in New York City more than a -year ago. Practice to Continue While Ice Lasts In spite of the discouragement of- fered by the weather, there has been great enthusiasm for ice hockey this winter. Helen Sherman, '21, has been coaching the teams on Monday and Thursday afternoons whenever there was ice, and practice will continue as long as the weather remains cold enough. It has been found inadvisable to have a team for each class. In- stead, there are two teams only, one for the odd, one for the even classes. Plans for a winter carnival include a hockey game, even though the teams lack finish, because of the short time during which they have practiced. However, at whatever date the carni- val is finally held, an ice hockey game will form part of the program. For this new sport at Wellesley goals and sticks have already been ac- quired. A gift of five fine Canadian sticks has been received by the Outing Club. If conditions for hockey continue to be adverse this year, the idea will be taken up next year, when it is hoped that greater progress will be made. PLANS FOR CARNIVAL HELD OPEN WH1 Be Held on Short Notice If Snow Falls Hope for a winter carnival at Wel- lesley this year has almost evaporated, because of the frequent postponements necessitated by adverse weather con- ditions. It has been put off indefinite- ly now, until sufficient snow falls. If there is another appreciable snow storm this winter the carnival will be held on very short notice, possibly in the middle of the week, instead of on Saturday, as it is usually planned. The program for the carnival which was scheduled for Washington's Birth- day was to include skiing, a snowshoe dash, a toboggan relay race between classes, a snowshoe obstacle race, and ice sports; a hockey game between the odd and even classes, a dash on skates, and possibly some fancy skat- ing. Winners of the different events were to have been presented with Outing Club pins, and points were to accrue to the different classes. As trophies, two cups have been bought, one to be presented to the class, and one to the individual having the high- est score at the end of the afternoon. Betty Parsons, '22, chairman of the carnival, has kept in touch with the weather man, who offers no promise of snow. However, plans are being held over in the possibility of a sufficient fall to warrant a carnival. Prospective contestants are meanwhile practicing as much as possible. The Outing Club will offer spring hikes and a water carnival later on, to offset the disappointment in winter activities. THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS CONTEMPORARY REALISM TO BE PHILOSOPHER'S SUBJECT Or. Bright man Will Speak March 11 Dr. Edgar S. Brightman will lecture upon "Contemporary Realism" on Sat- urday, March 11, at 10:40 A.M., in Room 222 Founders' Hall. Dr. Bright- man has recently been appointed pro- fessor of philosophy in Boston Univer- sity, and is a close thinker and vig- orous speaker. The Department of Philosophy and Psychology extends a general invitation for this event to the college. DEPARTMENT STORES OFFER VARIETY OF POSITIONS Opportunity to Work Up "A department store is not the place for those looking for a soft snap: everyone must be alive every minute." Mr. J. H. Fairclough of the Personnel Department of Jordan Marsh Co. thus described the sort of position open to college girls in de- partment stores, in his talk on Mon- day, February 27. Employees of a large department store usually start at the bottom as sales girls, and ad- vance by a system of promotion. A department store covers almost all lines of work, and the right kind of person can advance rapidly to a re- sponsible position. STONE TO HOLD FAIR FOR FUND Will Take Place On St. Patrick's Day Articles of every description will be donated by Stone residents to be sold at the fair planned by that dormi- tory for St. Patrick's Day.

SPEAKERS PRESENT NEGRO EDUCATIONAL PROBLEMS (Continued From Page One) vicious tendencies. There are nowa- days in Mr. Walker's home county negro high schools and prosperous homes. But last year the state of Vir- ginia as a whole contained 95,000 negro children who did not go to school even one day of the year. There is much for Hampton to do, Mr. Walker pointed out. He himself was adopted by a Boston philanthropist, who paid his tuition as a student, never having seen him. At present Mr. Walker's daughter is going through the school on a scholarship fund raised by a northern group — perhaps a Welle'sley contribution. Negroes in the south, said Mr. Walker, are very grateful to the north for cre- ating sentiment as well as opportuni- ties for negro education. Dr. Gregg Explains Race Differences Dr. Gregg, whose speech followed a selection from the quartet, said that the negro music was like the race it- self: simple, sincere, and full of a mystic faith. He touched upon the prevalent difficulties between the races; lynchings and vote-buying are not confined~to the south, he remarked. Speaking of the negro as our national responsibility, Dr. Gregg reminded his hearers that the negroes came to America not because they wished to but because they were forced to. It is therefore our duty to see that they shall have their chance along with the rest. Hampton Institute does its best to give them that chance. It trains them in hard, steady work, and aims to develop self respect, trustworthi- ness, and unselfishness. Dr. Gregg ex- pressed a hope that Wellesley would send some more teachers to Hampton; several have already proved their value there. Quartet's Singing Enjoyed The music of the quartet was, of course, enjoyed to the fullest extent. Plantation songs and negro spirituals were rendered with genuine Dixie fer- vor.

FELLOWSHIPS OFFEREO IN SOCIAL ECONOMIC RESEARCH (Continued from Page 1) in the construction and interpretation of statistical tables, and in the literary presentation of the results of the in- vestigation. All fellows are required to take the course in statistics given by the Director of the Department of Research. In addition to formal training in statistics and methods of research, two cooperative investigations will be made by the staff of the Research De- partment. The first of these is lim- ited in scope and may be based on data already collected. The second, which will be the chief original inves- tigation of the year, will require field work for the filling of schedules, and will afford each fellow experience in all stages of the work required for mod- ern cooperative investigations of so- cial or economic problems. Affiliations with Colleges Students who have received satis- factory undergraduate training in so- ciology and economics may offer the year's work in the Research Depart- ment in fulfillment of requirements for the degree of Master of Science in Re- search at Simmons College. The thesis or research work is accepted also in certain seminar courses at Radcliffe College, Tufts College, and Massachu- setts Institute of Technology. By spe- cial arrangement with the Committee on Graduate Instruction of Wellesley College, the work may be counted as a part of the requirements for a mas- ter's degree. Several western univer- sities have accepted the completed studies as theses for advanced degrees, and have given graduate credit for the training in research. Professors from affiliated colleges serve on the committee which awards the fellow- ships. Applications Application must be filed before May 1st.
